Emerging From the Rabbit Hole, oil, 32"x48", 2013
I jumped feet first and with complete abandon down the rabbit hole years ago, and I'm just now emerging to take the first breathes of fresh air. I had forgotten about the existence of sunlight or maybe I never knew how to recognize it in the first place. It was so long ago.
Emerging From the Rabbit Hole is a painting depicting my current point of the journey, recovery. The reference image I used is based on a photo taken by a friend of Bingham Canyon Copper Mine in Utah. Bingham has been in operation for over 100 years and is the largest man-made excavation on earth. This is a testament to just how deep I had fallen.
